This awesome double-sided tee is a rare find from the world of professional skateboarding. This t-shirt celebrates Kevin Harris, a skater from Vancouver, Canada who was a member of the legendary skateboarding team, the Bones Brigade. The Bones Brigade was put together by George Powell and Stacy Peralta's company Powell Peralta, and it was known for having some of the most notorious names in the sport. Other Bones Brigade members have included Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerroro, Mike McGill, Rodney Mullen, and of course arguably the most famous skateboarder of all time, Tony Hawk.
Harris became the first Canadian skateboarder to ever go pro in 1982, and he helped to popularize the sport in his home country. Harris helped to launch the Slam City Jam, a North American Skateboard Championship which put Vancouver on the map in the skate world. The event premiered in Harris' hometown in 1994, and served as a three-day event celebrating skate culture. Harris also founded Ultimate Distribution, the first ever Canadian skateboard distribution company, and Concrete Powder Magazine, which was the Great White North's first ever skate magazine.
